My February 1985 issue of the Twilight Zone magazine landed in my mailbox today. I do love ebay!
I will post more on the articles inside, and the King/Straub interview. I love going through old magazine's and seeing what was happening at the time. As I thumbed through aging pages, something cool caught my eye. It was an ad. Later that year, 1985, King would be exposed as Richard Bachman. But in February, the general reading public had not been let in on the secret. The ad is for Thinner.
That's interesting, because Bachman had run under the radar until Thinner. His books were not met with much publicity. In fact, they were usually released as simple paperbacks.
